olive oil

  1. The way I see it, Walmart products absolutely suck. They are all made with the cheapest ingredients and have a ton of preservatives added. But since olive oil is so easy to make and store, any brand should be good.

    You should try their Great Value Italian-Style frozen meatballs. Best-tasting meatballs in a bag ever. Lots of the store-branded stuff is hit and miss.

    Like...TGIF's Mozz sticks. You'd figure they would be great? No, they are just AWFUL! They do not have real cheese in them, but white goo. Best frozen Mozz I have found is Stop 'n Shop, a regional supermarket here.

    Don't fault all of WalMart's home-branded products until you have tried them.

    Have you tried one of these Olive Oil-In-A_Box products?

    If you have tried olive oil that is provided in packaging that's resistant to the ill effects of Oxygen and Light, what's your verdict? Unlike a bottle of wine that one tends to go through before it goes bad, olive oil sits in the supply chain, then sits in the home for some duration before the last 75, 50 25, 10% is consumed. Those dregs are often rancid and contain many more inflamitory and bad taste components that were not there when produced but by 'wear and tear' of Oxygen and Light and Heat steadily form over time. The rate of formation is greatly reduced by the packaging below, or so goes the story.

    What say you?

    Rancidification can detract from the nutritional value of food, as some vitamins are sensitive to oxidation.[3]
    Rancidification is the process of complete or incomplete oxidation or hydrolysis of fats and oils when exposed to air, light, or moisture or by bacterial action, resulting in unpleasant taste and odor.
    Specifically, it is the hydrolysis or autoxidation of fats into short-chain aldehydes, ketones and free fatty acids, which are objectionable in taste and odor.[1]
    When these processes occur in food, undesirable odors and flavors can result.

    To be safe you better buy the oil from Genco, or you get a knife in yer gut.

    1. Get Raw Fresh Olives.
    2. Wash Olives Very Well.
    3. Pit Washed Olives.
    4. Crush Olives in Large Chunks.
    5. Add 1/2 Cup of Warm Water.
    6. Mash Olives into a Brown Paste.
    7. Use a Cheesecloth to Extract Liquids.
    8. Extract Liquids by Using Your Hands.
